Greater Spokane Incorporated reopens small business, nonprofit grant program

UPDATED: Wed., Aug. 12, 2020

Greater Spokane Incorporated has reopened a coronavirus-relief grant program to assist small businesses and nonprofits.

Small businesses with fewer than 50 full-time employees and nonprofits with any number of employees can apply for the OPENTogether small business and nonprofit grant program to offset COVID-19 related expenses, such as payroll, rent, and safety and operating costs.

Applications completed in the initial funding period, which closed Monday, will be given priority. Additional applications received before 5 p.m. Friday will be considered for funding, if grant money is available.

The OPENTogether small business and nonprofit grant program is administered by GSI and Innovia Foundation in partnership with Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce, West Plains Chamber of Commerce, Visit Spokane and Downtown Spokane Partnership.
